Vascular Disease - Blood Vessel Disorders
Though common, especially with age, problems related to one’s blood vessels, known as vascular disease, if left undiagnosed or untreated, can lead to complex health conditions.
Vascular disorders can affect various arteries ranging from the aorta, the largest artery in the body, to smaller peripheral arteries that provide blood to multiple organs, muscle, and tissues in the body.
Common problems with arteries include blockages that can result in the poor blood flow to sustain vital structures, and weakened arteries that can eventually burst (aneurysms).
Common conditions related to vascular disease include:
- Abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections (tears in the wall of the artery)
- Carotid blockages/cerebrovascular disease
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Diabetes-related circulatory problems and wounds
- Kidney disease requiring dialysis
- Mesenteric artery disease (intestinal blood flow)
- Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and limb ischemia (blockages in blood flow that can lead to pain or even loss of limb)
- Peripheral artery aneurysms
- Renal artery disease
- Varicose veins
